My new show opens four weeks from yesterday and I'm now in the stage that is probably the least fun. All the art is made, but it has to be made ready to hang. I've made about 20 hand-stitched pieces in varying shapes and sizes, most of them pretty small, and to make a cohesive body of work they're all going to be mounted on stretched canvases, covered with black fabric.
Unfortunately, the black fabric is not tightly woven (I bought the cheapest cotton in the store) so the white canvas shows through when it's tightly stretched. So I had to paint the outer border of the canvas black first.
